Dear CBS Family and Friends,

It’s been a while since our last update, and we are happy to report that things are looking up.

What’s Been Happening

Whether you joined us for High Holiday services in person or watched on Livestream, you saw a good number of congregants in the sanctuary. Our protocols remained in place, including the wearing of masks.  The social hall was open and with seating capacity of almost 100 chairs, people were able to be together yet remain comfortably distanced. It was heartwarming to see the crowd that came, and hearing all their voices praying together was very uplifting after 18+ months of restrictions.

Our Kabbalat Shabbat and Saturday Shabbat services are equally inspiring, with our spirited community of members coming together to continue our services and traditions. We are very grateful for the participation of our Rabbis and lay leaders, and those who attend are happy to take part through Aliyot and English readings.

We look forward to welcoming members and visitors every Shabbat, whether in person or via Livestream. In addition, we have a number of Friday night Musical Shabbat services planned, including Shabbat Unplugged, which features a little bit of drink and nosh before the Friday night service. Be sure to check our website for updates. 

What’s Ahead

Our Task Force continues to meet periodically to keep up to date with events.  Our number one objective is to provide a safe environment for our members and guests, and we are happy to report that there have been no COVID clusters at CBS.  We have to stay vigilant, but it does appear that, if present trends continue, better days are ahead.
